A new lunchtime activity club exploring the beauty of maths, has been launched by Headmaster Mr Russell.
The club will explore how art and maths are intertwined and topics will include Celtic knots, curves, the Dutch graphic artist Mauri’s Cornelius Escher who made mathematically-inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints and Islamic geometry.
The club- takes place every Thursday at 1.15pm, is aimed for all age groups and for all levels.
“Initially we’ll be looking into how maths and art are connected, and then how maths has also influenced music and science and so on,” said Mr Russell.
He added: “Leonardo da Vinci may be best known for his painting and artistic works, but he considered himself more a scientist than an artist. He saw much of the world through the eyes of mathematics.”
“Pupils who are wary of maths will be encouraged to attend to allow them to appreciate that it is not something to be feared, that it pervades every aspect of our lives and it is there to be enjoyed.”
